Unveiled late last year, Command & Conquer Tiberium Alliances is a browser-based take on the old real-time strategy series, which manages to combine the terms "massively multiplayer", "browser-based" and "free-to-play" in a single sentence that makes it sound like just about the saddest video game ever released.

If you don't believe me, take a look at the trailer above. And if none of this dissuades you, the game's in open beta, right now.
